With the nick-breaking technology Marbach has brought to the market – already in autumn 2016 – a solution that optimizes the blanking of very small blanks with a double knife. Since then, many customers have employed this new Marbach technology.
In nick-breaking tools, the punches in the male blanker are replaced by special pins. These are positioned in such a way that the nicks can be separated specifically and in a controlled manner. So the ups fall down vertically without twisting or tilting.
Head of Business development at Marbach, Jan Brunner: “Special application scenarios during die-cutting very small blanks with double knife have sometimes caused problems in the past. During the last months customers with such jobs have used the new nick-breaking technology. The results achieved have been positive overall. The customers are well satisfied. They report a significant reduction of machine stops – even with higher speeds. The blanks can be separated and stacked safely. The productivity increases significantly.”
Due to excellent results, Marbach will now offer its new technology to customers as a standard solution for small blanks with double knife.

Marbach has recently added a special high-speed tool for flat die-cutting to its portfolio: the marbaspeed cutting-die for corrugated board. This new Marbach tool has been catching on more and more in the market. It is characterized by its being equipped with a new type of rubber: Marbach flexpower. Initially only used for rotary tools, flexpower has been applied to flat tools for the corrugated board industry since earlier this year. With increasing success. More and more customers order their tool in this special version “marbaspeed”.
Marbach introduced its optimized blanking technology at the beginning of the year. Since then all upper marbablankers from Marbach are equipped with the new long-life component marbapusher|p. As a result customers are very pleased with the increased flexibility and productivity in their blanking process. The marbapusher|p is available exclusively from Marbach.
Marbach Tool Manufacturing will take part in the ThinWall Asia on the 18th and 19th of September 2017 in Singapur. At this conference the global 'who is who' in plastic thin-wall packaging will meet.
Marbach not only delivers cutting-dies, but also materials and tools for print shops.
Nicks ensure a smooth transport of sheets through the die-cutting machine. They should however distract as little as possible from the appearance. That’s why packaging producers always try to have as few and small nicks as possible. Nicks play an even greater role in producing a packaging blank. Because transport nicks affect the performance of the production process. And as a result machine speeds. Waste nicks are largely responsible for the waste-free quality of the produced blank.
